Pupil & Catch Up Premium

Premium Funding


Pupil Premium

Lulworth and Winfrith CE Primary School is a highly inclusive school.  All members of staff and governors are committed to meeting the pastoral, social and academic needs of all pupils in our school, to ensure every child achieves their full potential.  


The Pupil Premium is a grant given to schools to enable them to fully meet the needs of children who are considered 'socially disadvantaged'.


These are pupils who are:

  • Currently eligible for free school meals, or have been eligible at any point within the last six years
  • Identified as a Looked After Child


Pupils falling within the above categories represent a significant proportion of the total pupils on roll. These pupils tend to be at greater risk of underachieving and the Pupil Premium grant is given to schools for schools to ensure these children achieve as well as their peers.  Lulworth and Winfrith CE Primary School is committed to narrowing the gap between vulnerable pupils and their peers, and pupil premium funding forms a vital part of that process. 


The Pupil premium strategy 2020-2021 document below give details of how we intend to spend this money.  It also includes a review of the previous year's spending.


Covid Catch Up Premium

Lulworth and Winfrith CE Primary School will receive £8,160 in 2020-21 to support help pupils who have had their learning affected by the COVID pandemic.  Details of how this money will be spent and the impact it has can be found below.



Service Premium

A significant proportion of our pupils at Lulworth and Winfrith CE Primary School come from service families. In recognition of the specific challenges children from service families face and as part of the commitment to delivering the armed forces covenant, they receive service premium funding.


Schools receive this funding so that they can offer mainly pastoral support during challenging times and to help mitigate the negative impact on service children of family mobility or parental deployment. Mobility is when a service family is posted from one location to another, including overseas and within the UK. At Lulworth and Winfrith we endeavour to ensure that all our service families feel welcomed and supported.
